Personal Protective Equipment Market to Double by 2029

Rapid urbanization is spurring infrastructure development in a big way. This coupled with resurgent oil & gas sector will drive the personal protective equipment market. Innovation in protective gear to combat skin, face, and respiratory injuries while working in hazardous industrial environments will differentiate product offerings and help manufacturers gain a competitive edge during the forecast period (2019-2029). The global personal protective equipment market will grow at a promising 6.5% CAGR through 2029. Organizations are conducting predictive safety analysis to devise preemptive measures that eliminate all possible risk factors. Manufacturers of personal protective gear are identifying alternative raw materials and cost efficient production techniques. The market shows signs of increasing fragmentation owing to a large number of small and medium enterprises capturing considerable market share. 

Hand & Arm Protection to Strengthen Product Demand

Hand & Arm Protection leads the product type segmentation with over 1/4th of the total market value. This can be attributed to rampant construction and mining projects around the world. It is crucial for construction workers and miners to protect their hands and arms from possible health hazards. Personal protective equipment manufacturers are making great strides in glove materials and enhanced grips and hence this segment is set to lead during the forecast period. Protective clothing holds the second largest market share as oil & gas refinery workers are required to wear protective gear by law.
